In 1980 following a distinguished engineering career at Cities Services, Tom Rinehart started Elkhorn to contract and operate midstream compression, gathering, processing and treating assets for producers nationwide. Elkhorn’s client list grew to include fully-integrated majors like Texaco, ARCO, British Petroleum, ONEOK and Encana, and smaller scale regional producers looking for a midstream complement to their upstream operations.

Mid-sized, multi-disciplined and focused on cost-effective solutions, Elkhorn’s culture evolved from this service oriented beginning to an organization with access to capital to joint venture with producer partners building our first-class infrastructure and staffing complex for treating and processing operations.

Elkhorn has capably delivered producer products to markets across the United States, forging into the retail space and into transportation to deliver the best possible returns to our midstream partners. We're working on solutions to the next market and compliance obstacles to better serve our producer partners.
